Substance Use

Substance use can have many negative effects, including conflicts with family and friends, legal concerns, physical and mental health impacts, and lack of development of other coping or stress management skills. Substance use problems can affect everyone, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, religion, socioeconomic status, or family environment. I help people to identify alternative coping skills, as well as understand triggers, and develop relapse prevention strategies. I have experience working to promote harm reduction in clients’ lives and assist them in achieving their own goals regarding substance use.
